Well thank you everyone for your sensitive comments on my moaning. This is the opposite of that post as most of the issues have been resolved.
Of course you all realise that I realise that my 'problems' are very trivial . I know many people have a lot worse to contend with but it was just the trivial things that got me down that day.
Anyway...my next door neighbours heard we had a broken TV and came up with this for as long as we need it.
The gap in the woodburner has been fixed by means of a temporary filling of fire cement.
We have wood..inside,
and in the logstore.
Once we had a stool from IKEA that broke and this was in the log basket just about to go in the fire when I put two and two together...
and its perfect for our emergency tree.Just needs covering.
I say emergency because it is teeny....and was lying on the floor at our local Christmas tree yard amongst overpriced and ugly trees so I bought it in case we couldn't get anything else, for three pounds!
By the middle of the week there will be a proper one in this space, but at the moment its in Mid Wales.
We never get a tree until the last possible moment but it backfired on us a bit this year .
We went on a tree hunt on Saturday in driving snow and the only one I liked was £45!!
I asked if that was a festive joke and they said no.
So we left it.
My husband is at a Welsh Castle and has just phoned to tell me he got one for £10. Not as big as we would have wanted but OK.
I had two lovely handmade cards in the post this week.
One from Viv at Hens Teeth and one from Carolyn at Love Stitching Red
Thank you both . I love them.
I am ashamed to say I haven't made any cards this year and the ones I bought were horrible, and I haven't sent any to blog friends .
Please accept my apologies and know that you are all very important to me . You have supported me through thick and thin this year and its means a lot.
I am more disorganised this year than ever before.
The low point of my week was being asked 'What happened to you on Wednesday?'
I had completely forgotten that I was First reader at the Carol Service.
I didn't even go in the end because my son came.
Fortunately someone stepped in who was well able to do it.
I feel terrible. The only excuse I can offer is that I got the reading the previous Sunday at Church and then we went straight to London for our friends funeral so it just went right out of my head.
I would have really loved it too.
I hope they ask me again and don't have me down as 'unreliable'.
Oh I didn't mention the washing machine...well I don't care about that.
I almost forgot..look what else came in the post.
Do you think thats the egg cup? A picture?
Well I never.
UPDATE:I was trying to jam too many lights on the worlds smallest tree when the postman came and VOILA!
Guess what I'm having for lunch?
